7:02 am
and it was just amazing. sam, i know you were there yesterday, for the moment. >> she looks great. >> i was fine until you guys showed that again. >> oh. >> let me just say it was -- the room had this incredible feeling of hope and strength in it. and they say that healing has a lot to do with the mind. and, elizabeth, we were talking about this a little earlier. >> bill moyer spoke about that. >> right. >> i can't believe we're not on the track to a good success because that room was a powerful room. >> joy. >> from your lips to god's ears. >> joy. it was like a celebration of life. >> a birthday. >> we'll talk to robin's doctor in a little while. and a big headline. all those u.s. troops home from afghanistan. 33,000 sent in two years ago. they're all coming home. was the surge a success? also, we'll kick off our pre-emmy party. lara is in los angeles. he'll have a look at the hottest fashions and some predictions. hey, lara. plus, we have one of the biggest rock bands in the world this morning, the killers.
7:03 am
you saw the people that popped up a little bit ago. lining up since midnight to see the killers. they're here to kick off our weekend. >> all right. we begin, now, with the new iphone. people have been lining up all over the world for days, now, to get their hands on it. we're among the very first to have it. it's right here. i have the white one. george has the black one. >> do we get to keep it? >> but it's not all -- no, really, there's security here. it's not all smooth sailing for apple. there's already a few glitches. and abc's matt gutman is at an apple store in miami, florida, standing in line with everybody outside with more on that story, matt. good morning, matt. >> reporter: morning, elizabeth. the line here snakes around the block already. a lot of folks here have been waiting since yesterday. but the big buzz among the folks here is the new operating system for apple. a lot of glitches in there. of course, some people not so happy about the charger. you have to buy a new one for this iphone. >> are you ready? [ cheers ]
7:04 am
>> reporter: the iphone 5 frenzy has begun. this morning in tokyo, hundreds surging. for apple's latest release. apple co-founder, steve wozniak, aka the woz, first in line, this time, down under in australia, buying two. >> i want to be a part of this big adventure, this big revolution. and this advance in society. >> reporter: and in the u.s., from coast to coast to the heartland, people investing serious time to get that new iphone. >> you can camp out in the forest if you want. i'll camp out at apple. >> reporter: overnight, the flagship store in new york, becoming a campground. littered are sleeping bags and folding chairs. previous releases had violent clashes in beijing earlier this year. our own becky worley was one of 2 million who skipped the line and preordered the iphone 5 on the first day they were available, september 14th. >> apple is pretty amazing building hype. it starts with secrecy. they leak a little information. then, the big announcement. then, iphone day, that's an event.
7:05 am
>> reporter: apple announcing this week it has already sold 2 million iphones in presales. they start at $200, triggering another frenzy, in the stock market. the famed fruit stock topping $700. but as with some other apple products, there are some gripes. it requires a new charger. and some new kinks. the operating system, ios 6, has dumped google maps. the result? disappears neighborhoods. the hoover dam, vanished. rivers to nowhere. spaghetti runways at airports. for some, even the itunes app failed to open. and this morning, there are entire websites dedicated to these glitches. apple says the mapping system is cloud-based. the more people that use it, the better it will become. a lot of folks have been waiting for 30 hours in line. they don't seem too concerned with it. they just want their phone. elizabeth? >> all right, matt, thanks so much.
7:06 am
for more, we're joined by jason tanz, new york editor of "wired" magazine. good morning. how are you? >> good. >> it is small and thin. the screen is bigger. but this controversy over the map app is growing. i heard somebody say today that the golden gate bridge on this app, the apple app, is four miles off from where it really is. >> yeah. >> in san francisco. >> and i'm from tacoma, washington. the tacoma-narrows bridge is famous for plummeting into the water. and now, apparently on the map, it's doing it again. >> every previous iphone has the google map loaded into it. >> apple and google aren't getting along well these days. they used to be buddies. but ever since the launch of android, which is their greatest competitor on the smartphone space, they've been fighting. so, this is essentially a corporate battle between apple and google. and customers are suffering for it. >> is there a chance that it will be rectified? can you get the google map app any other way on this? and also, the youtube app that
7:07 am
used to be loaded on the other iphones is not on this one. >> for right now, you can't get a google maps app. what you can do is use the browser to go to google maps and you can bookmark it so it's easy to get to. my understanding is there is an ios 6 google maps app in the works. but it's not -- it's not yet made it to the phone. >> are we going to see more as the companies compete more and more for the same share of the pie, so to speak? >> the internet used to be about openness, about five years ago. what the iphone did was introduce a new way of thinking about how you win in the digital space. instead of just making a platform that anyone can join, you create the whole product. you create the phone. you create the software. you create the services. and that's proprietary. you buy one, you buy all of them. apple has been successful, that that's how people think about digital products now. so yes, it will continue. >> jason tanz, thank you so much. despite it all, more people lining up to buy this phone than all the others. >> it will be a huge success, i'm sure. >> well, i've been playing with it and i know why. it's fast. >> and really light.
7:08 am
>> yeah, very light. race for the white house, now. "your voice, your vote," just 46 days before the voting begins. and with new polls showing mitt romney falling behind in the key battlegrounds, he is striking back, pouncing on president obama for his failure to change washington. jake tapper has haul that from the white house this morning. good morning, jake. >> reporter: that's right. key battleground states, iowa, wisconsin, colorado, showing a slight edge for president obama. mitt romney, attacking the president, now, using comments he made to paint the president as a washington insider who is inept. appearing on the spanish-language network, univision, a day after his challenger, mitt romney, president obama was asked what his biggest failure was during his first term. he responded his failure to pass immigration reform. and -- >> the most important lesson i've learned is you can't change washington from the inside. you can only change it from the outside. >> reporter: the president said that meant he'd spend his second term trying to convince the public to pressure lawmakers. but mitt romney saw the comments as an indictment of the
7:09 am
president's leadership. and minutes later, he pounced. >> the president, today, threw in the white flag of surrender again. he said he can't change washington from the inside. he can only change it from outside. well, we're going to give him that chance in november. he's going outside. i can change washington. i will change washington. >> reporter: romney repeated that attack over and over again. using those words to portray the president as inept. >> the president of the united states says he can't change washington from the inside. he said he can't change washington from the inside. he says he can't change it from the inside. >> reporter: but at this point, both candidates are looking for any edge they can find. the president wasted no time painting romney as out of touch for saying the 47% of americans who don't pay federal income taxes are irresponsible, government-dependent victims. >> when you express an attitude that half the country considers itself victims, that somehow they want to be dependent on
7:10 am
government, my thinking is, maybe you haven't gotten around a lot. >> reporter: on radio iowa late thursday, ann romney was asked about republican critics who say her husband is running a losing campaign. >> stop it. this is hard. you want to try it? get in the ring. >> reporter: and, george, both sides reported more than $110 million having been raised in their august financial reports. but the romney campaign facing some questions from republican donors about a $20 million loan it had to take out. and also, up to $200,000 in bonuses given to top campaign staffers, apparently for doing such an astounding job. >> thanks. all of the latest from the campaign trail on sunday "this week." with headliners from both campaigns and the power house round table. now, let's go to amy robach in for josh, for the other top stories. >> good morning, guys. we begin with a major milestone in america's longest war. the troop surge in afghanistan is officially over this morning. the last of the 33,000 troops president obama sent to the war
7:11 am
zone two years ago are now on their way home. abc's martha raddatz joins us, now. martha, what does this mean for the overall war effort? and for those troops who are left behind? >> well, as the surge troops are gone, it still leaves some 68,000 troops in afghanistan. all combat troops will be out at the end of 2014. although, some sort of force will remain. of the nearly 2,000 american deaths in afghanistan, 57% occurred during this surge. the last surge troops are leaving at an extremely tumultuous time. the core of the mission is training afghan troops. but those troops are now turning on the americans and nato forces in record numbers. it has gotten so bad, we have suspended most patrols with the afghans. these will be very challenging years ahead, amy. >> all right, indeed. martha raddatz, thanks so much. and more violent clashes are erupting in the muslim world this morning. in protest of that anti-islam movie produced in california. at least one person was killed
7:12 am
in pakistan when police opened fire on protesters torching a cinema there. the government has blocked cell phone service to prevent militants from setting off bombs remotely. congress is going on recess today without renewing the massive farm bill, leaving many people in the heartland in limbo. house republicans refused to vote on the $500 billion measure until after the election. it provides money for drought relief, insurance and other subsidies. but here it is. it also funds the highly controversial food stamps program. new developments in the colorado movie theater shooting. for the first time, suspect james holmes appeared in court without that bright orange hair. at thursday's hearing, prosecutors gave up their fight to get ahold of a notebook holmes sent to a psychiatrist. they could still get ahold of it, if holmes uses an insanity defense. a jury in ohio has found a leader of a breakaway amish sect and his followers guilty of hate crimes for chopping off the hair and beards of other amish people. prosecutors say samuel mullet masterminded the attacks because
7:13 am
he was trying to shame more mainstream members. targeting their hair, which has religious meaning, made it a hate crime. and those convicted now face at least ten years in prison. finally, a frightening scene at a soccer match overseas. a team from iran was taking on a team from saudi arabia. go ahead and watch the video. number 40 in yellow, he picks up something thrown from the crowd. when it lands, the explosion sends refs running for cover. it appears to be a grenade. no word on who threw it. farnlg natalie, no one was hurt. he got it out of his hands in the nick of time. the game ended 0-0. we have no idea why someone would do something like that. >> usually in the field of sport, you throw roses or something like that. >> thanks, amy. now for the hunt for the photographer who took the topless photos of kate middleton. new details this morning from another paparazzo who says he knows who took them. also this morning, some
7:14 am
surprising comments from john travolta, coming to the duchess' defense. jeffrey kofman joins us with more. >> reporter: the french police are on the case searching for the photographer that the london tabloids call the rat. who snapped those infamous shots. the rat is actually an irishman. he could be in big trouble. a $24 million chateau in the south of france owned by the queen's nephew. the pictures taken a half a mile from the house. what's called a supertelephoto lens. we went to the offices of "the closer" and asked for an interview with the editor who said violating kate's privacy was no big deal. not doing interviews? it seems the editor values her privacy. while william and kate did their best over the past week to keep smiling on a royal visit to the
7:15 am
pacific islands, their lawyers scored a huge victory, winning an injunction in paris. the question now who shot the photos? this photographer says he knows. >> he's from south of dublin and he had red hair. but, of course, i will never, never, never said his name. >> reporter: when the snapper is identified, he, or she, could be in big trouble. the french criminal code is very clear. taking, recording, or transmitting the picture of a person who is within a private place without the consent of the person concerned is a crime. the penalty? one year in prison and a $60,000 fine. this morning, in london, john travolta who has had his own issues with privacy, says he
7:16 am
sympathizes with the royals. >> it's probably the worst time to be famous. >> reporter: it's not clear if the french courts can force the magazine to name the photographer. while the pictures can't be published in france, they have been published in several other countries. the pictures are all over the internet. >> boy, they sure are. we'll get the latest now on lindsay lohan. she's been arrested for hitting a pedestrian with a car and fleeing the scene. and new surveillance video shows the scene outside that manhattan nightclub where it all went down. will the tape help or hurt? abc's rob nelson is here to break it all down. good morning, rob. >> good morning, george. another piece of the puzzle for sure here. lindsay lohan has cemented her reputation as one of hollywood's leading bad girls, that's for sure. in her latest case of hit-and-run, a surveillance tape released by the cops just yesterday, is leaving her guilt very much in doubt. overnight, a seemingly high-spirited lindsay lohan carrying a friend's child, emerging for the first time since her arrest. even tweeting this photo of a parked car with the caption, no more ramps. just hours earlier, this
7:17 am
surveillance video of her alleged hit-and-run, outside a manhattan hotel was released. it was just before 12:30 a.m. wednesday. police have blurred some of the video. but you can see the starlet's car approaching from the left. she is driving towards a ramp. in a friend's black porsche suv. flashing her headlights to warn bystanders. watch as the alleged victim, 34-year-old chef jose rodriguez crosses the car's path. watch again. with bystanders blocking the view, it's difficult to make out if lohan clips, grazes or misses him altogether. >> this tape helps lindsay lohan. it doesn't show her driving like a crazy person and mowing people down. >> reporter: here, rodriguez appears to be chasing after lohan's car. >> the fact he went after the car certainly won't help any civil case that he might bring. >> reporter: rodriguez told police lohan went into a nearby nightclub after the two exchanged words.
7:18 am
she was arrested about 2:30 that morning. charged with leaving the scene and then quickly released. authorities say they don't believe alcohol played a role in the incident. detectives tell abc news even they cannot tell from the video if lohan made contact with rodriguez. the nypd is reportedly still awaiting rodriguez's medical records to see if he was actually hit by a car. he told "the new york daily news" that, quote, i was in so much pain, i fell to the side. he said doctors told him he suffered torn tendons. now, lohan's publicist dismissed the claims. telling abc news, quote, we are very confident lindsay will be cleared of all charges. and scrutiny will then shift to the person making these allegations. the video's a little hard to see. but it doesn't appear too damaging. >> and dan weighed in strongly. now let's get to sam with the weather. the cold air will arrive right in time. you won't have to. you'll notice it right away. by monday, 59 in minneapolis. boston, 64 new york city, 66.

transplants is now not guilty only for patients with human malignancies. and the other things is, we can get older patients transplanted now. it's not only something that's reserved for young patients. there are, believe it or not, even patients 80 and 81 years old who can get stem cell transplants now. the number of patients who can benefit from the procedure is increasing. the procedure is getting better and better as the years go by. and the number of conditions that can be cured is going up. >> one more reason for everyone at home, if they have the time it takes just a few minutes, to become a donor. join thanks very much for coming in again. if you want to follow robin's progress and share your messages of support, go to let's go back to sam. >> it's a miracle that none of us knew much about. i've learned so much through gail. that team is amazing for robin.

it is 7:43 now. we're back with a shocking, new twist to one of the most famous trials in u.s. history. it's been nearly 20 years since o.j. simpson was found not guilty of killing nicole brown simpson and ron goldman. o.j. simpson's house guest at the time of the murder, kato kaelin, is now speaking out, saying he does think o.j. committed that crime. here's abc's cecilia vega. >> reporter: it's been nearly two decades since the trial of the century. >> if it doesn't fit, you must acquit. >> reporter: now, one of the famous faces from that courtroom drama is back in the spotlight. and speaking out this morning,
7:44 am
he says, for the very last time. what do you want to say to put this to rest? >> i'm done. let everybody just go on with life. >> reporter: kato kaelin found his name splashed across headlines and rocketing across the internet thursday, after "the new york post" published this story. in it, kaelin points a finger directly at o.j. saying, yes, he did it. but he was just too scared to say that back then back in court. >> kato kaelin saying o.j. did murder his wife. >> it has everyone talking. >> why didn't he come out then? he was scared, right? >> he was scared. >> i'm scared of o.j. and i never met him. >> reporter: but kaelin is fighting back. saying that story is a lie. >> these are words never in my vernacular. >> reporter: instead, kaelin says he thinks o.j. is guilty. but says he knows nothing more than the rest of the country, which held itself collective breath waiting for the verdict. >> if someone said, you think
7:45 am
he's guilty? i would say yeah. >> reporter: if i can ask that question? >> it's not a question that can be asked. >> reporter: it's a story line that he has stuck to. all through his post trial 15 minutes of fame and beyond. kaelin was o.j. simpson's house guest. he was staying at simpson's home the night nicole brown simpson and ron goldman were murdered. known as much for his hair as his vague, rambling testimony on the stand. have your memories, your recollections of that night changed over the 18 years? >> no. i don't really go and think about those memories. if there's a reason for me to come and it goes in my mind, i just happen to think about it. and i hope it passes right away. >> reporter: these days, he hosts his own tv show in los angeles. he says he just wants to put this history in the past. >> i'm not the reason o.j. simpson's innocent in the first trial. >> reporter: you're not? >> i'm not at all. no. you gotta look -- there's a defense. there's prosecutors. i was a witness. i said, i think he's guilty.

amy has all the headlines this morning. >> indeed, i do. shifting gears. we begin with the official end to the troop surge in afghanistan. the 33,000 additional troops president obama sent to the war zone two years ago, are heading home. but 68,000 remain. they're training forces to take over after the u.s. withdrawal officially in 2014. the backlash of that anti-islam film is sparking new violent, new protests today. one man was killed in pakistan as a mob set a movie theater on fire. president obama says his biggest failure so far is not passing immigration reform. that's what he told a forum in miami. also, the most important lesson he's learned, is that washington cannot be changed from the inside. he says the public has to be better mobilized to pressure congress. mitt romney jumped on that comment. saying, it shows the president is surrendering when it comes to
8:04 am
confronting big challenges. polls show romney trailing in key swing states. and new numbers show him trailing in the cash department. about $38 million less cash on-hand than the president. this morning, gadget-crazy fans are finally getting their hands on iphone 5. the tech giant could sell as many as 10 million this weekend. but there's a worm in the apple orchard. many users say the new map software that replaces google maps is a lost cause. while apple is launching the new iphone, blackberry is reporting a massive outage today, affecting europe, the middle east, and africa. so far, the u.s. not affected. you heard the saying, you don't know what you got until it's gone. watch this one. video out of costa rica, showing a guy spear fishing. he nabs a pretty good-sized fish. and look at that. snap, a huge fish comes along. almost taking that fisherman's arm along with it. he's okay. the fish he caught -- i think he

8:06 am
we have seen stills. this is the first glimpse of the trailer that shows lohan as elizabeth in a variety of different scenarios. dripping with diamonds. kissing in a pool. throwing bottles. drinking champagne. and you'll see more when "liz and dick" airs on lifetime in november. also in "pop news," cindy crawford, one of the most gorgeous women walking the planet. i know i won't get follow-ups on this. the 46-year-old supermodel tweeted a stunning picture of herself. and wrote, as i've gotten older, i wear less makeup. it can make you look older. i would be comfortable in cindy's skin. >> i would walk around with nothing. >> i could grow old if i looked like cindy crawford. >> you two, not too shabby yourselves. >> good man. >> so, cindy practices what she
8:07 am
preaches. she was spotted out showing off her natural good looks. and last month, as she modeled pieces from her very first fashion collection. she is gorgeous. and i do agree. we should do a whole show without makeup someday. or not. >> i think i'll call off. and finally, when it comes to e-mailing or texting, i have a question for you all. would you say that you are closest to a compulsive woodpecker, a boorish parrot, or a lightning humming bird? what do you think? >> a woodpecker. >> a humming bird. >> interesting. >> you're right there. >> george is right there. every time he and i are trading recipes, he's, like, right back at me. >> if you don't answer fast, you forget. it's gone forever. >> that's right. >> i ask this important question because researchers at two scottish universities have
8:08 am
matched e-mail patterns to bird behaviors, for some reason. there's 12 in all. compulsive woodpeckers can't resist checking e-mails day or night. the boorish parrot doesn't understand why people get upset. i am, too, george. and of course, we have a few night owls here at "gma." however, i believe they're more like the robin birds, which is described as having perfect e-mail manners. that's pretty appropriate that the best one is called the robin. >> it is. >> great stuff, lara. thanks. let's get out to sam for the weather. >> good morning, everybody. hey, let it out, times square. i will tell you. every day -- this is the best group of people in the world. it's the best place to be. happy friday, everyone. tell me where you're from. >> florida. >> it's your birthday, right? >> it is. >> happy birthday. we say happy birthday to little, texas.
